I have a passion for teaching, and I have a proven track-record in helping kids with their academic improvement. With my last tutoring company, I was awarded top tutor of the Spring semester, out of all company-wide tutors in NYC, New Jersey, and Connecticut. This award is based on student feedback and academic improvement
I am very friendly and outgoing which makes students feel comfortable with me, and I can relate the subject material to the studentsí personal life to make it applicable and therefore more approachable.
I like building relationships with my clients and watching them excel and succeed with my help.
I know math can be a tricky subject to learn as many of the concepts seem so abstract, so to overcome this learning challenge I use household items to give students hands-on experiences with every topic. My teaching skills include variation techniques and differentiate my teaching so that concepts can be looked at from many different points of view. And I also really like relating the information...
I have just finished my first year of teaching in Thailand where I taught grade three and also tutored my students outside of school. I would like to continue working with students one on one to help them grow.
I also have a teaching degree in elementary education.
